I have undertaken a challenge this year. I am trying to find the good in every day by writing about happiness and gratitude that I feel. No matter how small there is always something to bring a smile or make you grateful, if just for a moment. Follow along with me as I dig deep as necessary and find the peace of the day. Join in if you are feeling happy and grateful too – in the comments or on your own blog. Let’s find some fun!
I woke up today in a full fibromyalgia flare. I was just out of 7 hours of sleep and I felt like I had been awake for three days straight. Add in the head to toe pain and body aches… it was not looking to be a great day.
I did what I had to do to take care of me. I took a couple of naps today and dug out my pain pills… I hate to take them very often because I don’t want them to lose their effectiveness. I used my heating pad and put off the laundry one day. I am hoping to get to sleep earlier tonight and with any luck the fatigue wont be as bad tomorrow. It doesn’t always work that way though. If it is still bad I will nap some more and adjust what I need to.
I am happy I have some things that can help ease the pain when I am hurting, I have the freedom to nap when the fatigue is bad and chance to rearrange things I don’t have the energy to do. I am grateful there is always a chance tomorrow will be better… that is a hope I have to hang onto.
